Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them-Film Review

I finally went and saw Fantastic Beasts yesterday. With great applause I must say  this film was well FANTASTIC! The return to the wizarding world was very exciting. JK Rowling reminds us all again that she’s the queen of fantasy and story telling.

This film took place in 1920’s New York City which is a slight contrast to Harry Potter’s time.  A British wizard named Newt Scamander{ Eddie Redmayne} visits different locations around the globe successfully researching magical creatures for his novel.  Things were going smoothly, until Newt swaps suitcases by accident with an American muggle named  Jacob{Dan Fogler}. Inside of Newt’s suitcase is a land where his fantastic beasts dwell. Soon Jacob opens Newt’s suitcase, releasing the creatures across the Big Apple. If things aren’t bad enough, dark wizard Grindelwald is on the loose, creating chaos and mayhem whenever he goes.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was full of action. This movie caught the audience’s attention quickly. I enjoyed the setting for this film. The music was spot on. The acting was  also outstanding! I felt like Newt Scamander was a little boring at first, yet his character grew as the film ventured forward. I like how there is a muggle( or  No-Maj as they’re called in America) within this group. We finally got to see a human’s perspective on wizards and magic. In addition, I like how there is an anti-magic group which showed us that muggles do indeed notice things. It’s now a fact. ok, Hagrid? I  most definitely do not want to give out too many spoilers, yet I cannot wait to watch this movie again.

While watching this film I kept thinking about how long it  has already been since Deathly Hollows. It’s amazing to think all of this came from one woman’s imagination. We’ve grown up with this phenomenal  world that JK Rowling continues to grow. She’s fantastic to say the least.
